It’s my birthday so I have been taking it easy all day. My favorite gift today is the snowfall since I woke up to its silent gentle accumulation decorating the trees surrounding our home. What a lovely sight to behold when your favorite color is white and you choose to stay in PJs for #cozyondown time, savoring the beauty of a January day. The light streaming through the windows just now is a glorious pink-winter-light, and an assorted lot of birds and squirrels are here to entertain. Since I’m in charge of this moment in time, I present this lazy excuse of a not-so-serious post: It’s My Birthday: Let Them Eat Cake & #CozyonDown With Bedroom Decor.

I Do Love Me Some Cake
Last year, I showed you how to easily hack a Funfetti cake mix, and this year I’ll give this a try subbing coconut oil for the butter and skim for the whole milk (or NOT – when it comes to me and cake these days, better to simply have a taste of that buttery deliciousness and call it a day!).
My Favorite Cozy Pillow
I’m well aware of how many cozy von cozy products I link to each and every day, but if there was just one that I could recommend wholeheartedly today, it is this sweet Sleepgram pillow that cradles my noggin each and every night. It has a genius design that makes it just right for everybody…go ahead and read about its adjustable intelligent design.
I am grateful for you, inventors at Sleepgram!

Serious Cuddle Factor
If you listen to the ‘veteran cuddler’s’ wisdom in the video below, maybe you’ll glimpse the beauty of becoming a vessel and a source of healing. We can never have too many such reminders.
Cultivating a Softer Heart
As I muddle through life with a chronic illness that strips me of a lot of comfort, my compassion grows. I’m not special; it is impossible to not deepen when grace becomes such an integral element in your daily life.
Tomorrow is not promised, and now that I know my Crohn’s disease can progress, I am struck by the gift of this life here and now. Remember that you don’t need more time to get all polished up to be worthy of love and mercy. You’re lovely right where you are, and the outside sparkly stuff will follow as the inside stuff is bathed in light.
What a gift to reach another birthday! I’m hoping remission from disease will someday find me, but if it doesn’t, I’ll remain joyful and encourage others to #cozyondown because I’M A CHILD OF GOD WITH A MADE UP MIND AND A WHOLE LOTTA GRACE CARRYING MY FAIRY SELF THROUGH THE VALLEY.
KEEP IT COZY, kittycats.
Peace to you right where you are.
